7:01 am
and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1-a in rockefeller plaza. good morning, everyone. welcome to "today" on a tuesday morning. i'm savannah guthrie. >> and i'm matt lauer alongside al roker and natalie morales. welcome back. you've been talking about that story out in colorado for the better part of a week. you got to see the damage firsthand. >> we really did. it's stunning. you have to see it as well. when you see it in person, not within the confines of your television set, it literally takes your breath away. >> good to have you back. we'll see that interview with the vice president coming up. >> we're baby crazy around here. on monday we began our week-long series called "born." we shared amazing moments when couples had their babies live on tv. well, this morning, not to be outdone, a live conception. before your mind goes crazy with that, we're in an operating room as a couple undergoes in vitro fertilization procedure. could be pretty amazing to see. >> before that, the rapidly
7:02 am
changing situation in nairobi where a bloody standoff between somali-based militants and kenyan forces have moved into a fourth day. let's get right to ron allen with the latest. ron, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning to you, matt. the kenyan government continues to insist that the situation here is under control and what basically is happening now, they say is a mopping up operation. also today a top kenyan official continues to insist that u.s. citizens were among the fighters who carried out the attack. this morning, kenyan soldiers still working to secure the besieged mall seemed to encounter more resistance. they appeared to carry a body bag from the building and in the past few hours, al shabaab, the militant group that claimed responsibility for the attack said their fighters are still holding their ground, following the effort to end the siege that began saturday. the government said it was in
7:03 am
full control of the situation combing the four-story mall from floor to floor to make sure it's safe. they believe all hostages are released adding the enemy will continue to spew propaganda. it remains unclear what happened to the remaining hostages and perhaps as many as ten, and the gunmen, as many as 15, according to the government. meanwhile, kenyan's foreign minister says u.s. citizens were among the militants. >> from the information we have two or three americans and so far i've heard of one brit. >> and the brit was a british born woman. >> woman. she has done this many times before. >> reporter: she is referring to samantha luthwate, " white widow" the wife of one of the london bombers that attacked the transit system in 2005. they posted a list on social media of those behind the attacks claiming some were from minnesota.
7:04 am
home to the largest somali population in america. sources say the issue won't be resolved until the identities of the gunmen are confirmed with forensic evidence. meanwhile, we're learning more about the victims, a british architect and his harvard educated wife who were expecting their first child in two weeks. as for the militants, authorities here say three were killed during the operation. another ten people were arrested in connection with what happened here. two at the airport reportedly. but the big concern is the hostages. >> all right, ron allen in nairobi. thanks so much. >> let's turn to roger who was a member of the national security counsel and worked in somalia shortly before the black hawk down incident. he is now an nbc news terrorism analyst. good morning. good to see you. >> you too, savannah. >> we have heard from kenyan's foreign minister that americans are among the attackers. how much stock do you put in those claims? do you consider that to be
7:05 am
credible? >> it's certainly credible. it's an official foreign source, the foreign minister. the u.s. government is going to pass judgment until they had a chance to confirm identity. if it proves to be true then it's very significant because al shabaab has not used westerners and americans in an attack outside of somalia up to this point. >> it would be significant strategically, of course. i wonder if it would be significant symbolically. would it be considered a big propaganda victory if al shabaab were able to say, we had americans among the perpetrators here. >> well it's interesting. they were all about trying to create the islamic state inside somalia and have been defeated from obtaining that objective and now the question is, is al shabaab looking to conduct attacks inside somalia but also
7:06 am
outside against the governments that supported anti-shabaab forces. it's a broad international appeal if this is true and true a source of potential revenue. outside do donators will give money because you believe they demonstrated capability. >> thank you so much. meanwhile, leaders are gathered here in new york for the united nations general assembly. a lot at stake. as the president, president obama, addresses the body today as does the new president of iran, rouhani. but will the two leaders actually meet each other? nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell has the latest on what we can expect. >> reporter: president obama is about to speak just moments from now at the u.n. one of 34 leaders addressing the general assembly today. but the big question is, whether he will have even a casual interaction with the newly elected president of iran.
7:07 am
ready for his close up on the world stage, iran's new president, rouhani arrived in new york on monday and even posted pictures of his arrive on twitter. with them both set to deliver speeches at the u.n. today, will they meet face to face? the choreography is delicate. president obama is set to address the u.n. this morning and joins a lunch hosted by the secretary general which rouhani does not plan to attend. they could still have an encounter, say u.s. officials, somewhere in the corridors. that carries some political risk for president obama, because rouhani isn't due to speak until later in the day at the u.n. the white house has no idea what he might say. if they do meet it will be the first encounter between u.s. and iranian leaders in more than three decades. the two presidents have already exchanged letters as rouhani told ann curry. >> the tone of the letter was positive and constructive. >> reporter: still, the white house has to reassure key allies like israel who say iran cannot

be trusted. bill clinton told judy woodruff we should proceed cautiously. >> reporter: with all the motorcades of heads of state, and bill clinton's annual initiative under way, midtown manhattan is wall-to-wall cars, cars going nowhere. >> it's a mad house and they with closing every street down. it's impossible to get around the city. >> reporter: now, if president obama and iran's president do meet today, possibly even if rouhani surprises the u.s. and shows up for lunch, it would be the first test of whether this is a new opening or just a charm offensi offensive. matt and savannah. >> andrea mitchell, thanks, here in new york, we appreciate it. new developments this morning that mass shooting in chicago last week. natalie has more on that. >> good morning, guys. two men are under arrest this morning in chicago following last week's shooting at a city park. that shooting wounded 13 people,
7:09 am
including a 3-year-old boy. the two suspects arrested last night are facing attempted murder and other charges but police don't think either pulled the trigger. they are still investigating. firefighters in southern california are struggling to contain a raging fire burning near azusa, which could threaten a number of homes there. officials have been fighting the fire on the ground and from the air. now wall street and what is moving the markets. cnbc's courtney reagan is joining us. >> more than four years after emerging from a government-sponsored bankruptcy, chrysler filed paperwork to go public. the ceo wants fiat to acquire all of chrysler. he hasn't been able to executive the deal so far. the proceeds of the $100 million chrysler ipo will go entirely to the trust for retired workers. meantime, investors are again focused on the housing market. lenar posting better than

7:11 am
from the first lady. >> the president caught on an open mike bragging to a fellow world leader about finally beating the smoking habit. the president's battle with smoking has been chronicled throughout his political career and the person most responsible for him quitting, so he says, has been the first lady. >> that was one of my prerequisites for, you know, entering into this race, is that, you know, he couldn't be a smoking president. >> while the president claimed monday to have been smoke-free for six years, it was just four years ago that he admitted he wasn't quite cured. >> as a former smoker, i constantly struggle with it. have i fallen off the wagon sometimes? yes. >> reporter: finally in 2010, the president along with his personal aide marvin nicholson both tried to quit together. with the help of nicorette pulled it off. as you know, we see him chewing gum a lot. it's not because he loves
7:12 am
dentyne. by the way, the first reason for the golf obsession in the first year, that's where he could smoke without the first lady seeing. she never saw it. that was always the deal. >> he exaggerated a little. >> shocking. >> are you shocked? >> he exaggerated a little in terms of how long he hasn't had a cigarette. >> i think it's how long he's not had a cigarette in front of the first lady. >> he told that leader he scored 54 points in a pickup game at the white house. >> i think he does always score 54 points. >> that's not rigged. let's get a check of the weather. >> we're all scared of our wives, too. there you go. let's show you what we have going on. basically we are talking about more and more rain in florida. it will not stop. we've been telling you about this for about a week and a half. why? well, we've had a stationary front. stationary it is. it has been stuck along the gulf coast. it is just staying there. low pressure will develop along
7:13 am

7:15 am
>> in the fly over what did you see and how did it affect you? >> the thing i saw was so much isolated devastation, right up through some of the small areas, imagine 20 feet of water coming down there, ripping out entire highways. i'm sure you saw it. so the isolation is what impressed me and the people who are stuck there. >> mr. vp, what do you see as critical need now? >> i think critical need now is get people housing. there's a lot of people that are just stranded. a person loses their home, they have no idea what to do. you get agencies you hear about, you walk into a fema -- there's 12 or 13, i think, what you find is there's something there to tell you what you need. >> a lot of these folks don't have flood insurance. what happens to them. >> the first step is to register with fema. we think for a lot of folks we can provide them renters assistance. find them a place to stay.
